Canada Emergency Student Benefit (CESB)
The CESB will provide financial support to post-secondary students, and recent post-secondary and high school graduates who are unable to find work due to COVID-19, and who are not eligible for the Canada Emergency Response Benefit or Employment Insurance, or are unable to find work due to COVID-19.
This benefit will provide $1,250 per month for eligible students or $2,000 per month for eligible students with dependents or disabilities.
Students who are eligible for the CESB can apply through the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). If you haven’t ever filed a Canadian tax return, you have to register with the CRA ahead of applying. This benefit will be available from May to August 2020.
